Challenge 744: Snape and the Alternate Muggle Career: Wedding Planner

This job wasn't on the official list, but I have (royal) wedding fever so...why not? I think Severus would make a precise if temperamental wedding planner, and it would certainly be easier with magic. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his new job as an (Muggle) Wedding Planner.

“As promised, I've returned with your wands. They have been thoroughly inspected, polished, and re-charmed, as per the Ollivander 100 Per Cent Multiple Lifetime Guarantee.”

“This – ooo! It hasn't swished and flicked this well since my first year at Hogwarts!”

“Ditto.”

“Oh yes.”

“Yes.”

“I trust I have rendered excellent customer service?”

“Very much so. English Petrol thanks you for your assistance. We do have one question, however.”

“Yes?”

“Normally we would not ask, but the Muggles are whispering.”

“Ah yes, Muggles. Your question?”

“Are you a vampire?”

“I've thorough checked your wands, gentlemen and ladies. I am pleased to report that the cores are intact - “

“Are you certain? Sometimes I swear I can feel the gryphon heartstring quivering.”

“Same here! The hippogriff feather in mine flutters.”

“ - intact, but there is a certain instability in the charms. I will need to take these take to Ollivander's for service - “

“What about the platform? The whole thing could tip over!”

“ - which is why I've brought loaner wands for your use until your own have been serviced and cleaned!”

“Who's the vampire?”

“Vampire? You mean the consultant? What makes you think he's a vampire?”

“Well, he's tall, dark, and skinny, isn't he? Deep voice? Dark glasses when he goes outside?”

“Everyone's wearing sunglasses today. The sun's out.”

“He won't talk to anyone but the gits who handle the stabilization controls.”

“Jesus, Tony! He's here to help them with a couple of technical problems, not suck their blood.”

“That's what he says. Just watch him close and you'll see.”

“You keep talking nonsense and you'll be the one who sees. Piss off.”

“You want me to travel to an off-shore oil platform? I'm a customer service rep for - “

“We offer excellent customer service to all our customers, Severus. That includes the wizards working for English Petrol out on the North Sea.”

“We have wizards on North Sea oil platforms? Since when?”

“Since the first one was built. How do you think they stay stable out there during storms? Half those thing would have come down the first storm season if not for us.”

“And now their wands - “

“Aren't working correctly.”

“Ah. Understood.”

“Welcome to Ollivander's 24 Hour Wandline. My name is Severus. How may I offer you excellent customer service?”

“The first time I used my new wand, it did nothing but spark! This is - ”

“Could you describe the problem in more detail? Mr. Ollivander will need more information to perform a proper diagnosis.”

“I told you, it sparks - “

“What spell were you attempting to cast?”

“Electricae maximus for my Muggle sister-in-law during a storm, and - “

“Sir. That spell produces sparks. Your wand is fine.”

“Oh. Never mind.”

“Welcome to Ollivander's 24 Hour Wandline. My name is Severus. How may I offer you excellent customer service?”

“My son dipped his father's wand in slug juice and the varnish came right off. Does he need a new one?”

“Only if your husband - “

“Boyfriend. We're saving up to marry.”

“I see. Is he having difficulty casting spells?”

“That's the problem, isn't it? He's out feeding the occamys so he doesn't know. Yet. ”

“Test it while he's unconscious. If the spell backfires, bring it in for a quick dip. Good luck.“

Challenge 742: Snape and the Alternate Muggle Career: Customer Service

Here's another job I'm not sure Severus could handle since it's tough. Dealing with the public is never easy, after all. And Severus does have a temper. Still, it could be interesting. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his new job in Customer Service.

“More tea, your ladyship?” Severus waited while the Countess finished her tea. She always had a second cup, but only after he asked.

“Thank you, Severus.” The Countess smiled approvingly as she took her first sip. “Perfection. Mr. Malfoy has no idea what he missed.”

Severus could not help a tiny smirk at how annoyed Lucius had been that Severus had refused to respond to his needling. “Scone or sandwiches? Cook was very proud of the deviled ham today so might I suggest a taste?”

“Such a good salesman! You always can persuade me,” said Lady Carrollton.

“Groveling?” Lucius straightened. “Groveling? I - “

“Taught me a great many valuable lessons,” Severus finished. It was almost time for tea, which her ladyship always took alone. “I am, of course, grateful for your tutelage.”

Lucius' face darkened, and for one awful moment it looked as if he were about to make a scene. Severus remained impassive – he might not be a sales executive but he did know how to conceal his emotions – and waited for him to calm. “The ladies should be done momentarily. May I offer you refreshment?”

Lucius glared. “No, thank you.”

“And so you went into service until of sales.” Lucius' fingers twitched as he positioned them on the handle of his cane. Severus tensed but from the way Lucius flicked his eyes down and to the side it was clear he was adjusting to not having an elf at his beck and call. “I confess to being surprised. You weren't exactly the best fag in Slytherin House.”

Severus ignored the insult – Lucius had not been an exemplary fag-master by any means – and smiled politely. “I prefer not to grovel in an office. Groveling at school was enough.”

“Sales executive?” Lucius twitched his perfectly groomed hair away from his perfectly smooth brow. Evidently life had been good to him despite rumors of trouble from a former Hogwarts student who'd done bad. “You, going into trade?”

“Sales executives analyze data and attempt to present their company's product to prospective clients. It was not my choice but it's a respectable profession.” Severus clasped his hands behind his back. Whatever Lucius had done made his presence tolerable, at least physically. “My mother urged me to consider it, but by then Lord Carrollton had already approached me about a position.”

“Severus? Severus Snape?”

Severus froze. He fought down the sudden twinge of pain in his right arm and turned.

“Lucius. What an unexpected surprise. Was Lady Carrollton expecting you?”

“I'm here to collect my wife,” said the man who'd destroyed Severus' ability to use magic. He regarded Severus with genuine wonder. “You look well.”
.
“Thank you.” Severus bowed his head in acknowledgment. “I'll inform her ladyship.“

“Severus.” Lucius looked genuinely puzzled. “Why go into service? You were - “

“Totally uninterested in being a sales executive, which was my other Muggle career choice.”

Challenge 741: Snape and the Alternate Muggle Career: Sales Executive

I would have thought this job would require some education, but evidently not? It involves Identifying business opportunities, researching and analyzing sales options, selling products by establishing contact and developing relationships with prospects, and recommending solutions. I'm not sure how Severus would handle this job, so I look forward to your takes on it. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his new job as a Sales Executive.

“You handled the Malfoys well,” said the Countess as Severus brought in a pot of tea as perfectly brewed as any potion. “Narcissa is tolerable, but Lucius is another matter.”

Severus shook his head. “There's no need to discuss him, Madam. His role in my life is over.”

“As is fitting! I at least was a Squib, but Lucius was directly responsible - “

“For bringing me to a better existence than the Wizarding World would have allowed me.” It had taken years for Severus to realize this, but it was true. “Tea, Madam?”

“Of course.”
